County 4-H benefit program in progress

Tractor Supply Co., 2003 E. Tipton St., Seymour, is conducting its paper clover program to support Jackson County 4-H.

Customers may donate $1 during checkout to purchase a paper clover to help the program, which starts today and ends May 7. The funds raised will be awarded as scholarships to local 4-H members wishing to attend 4-H camps and leadership conferences across the country.

Since it began in 2010, the partnership between Tractor Supply and 4-H has generated more than $10 million in funding nationwide. The paper clover fundraiser, which takes place in the spring and fall, raised nearly $900,000 during the fall 2016 campaign. The number of scholarships distributed to students following the spring fundraiser will be determined based on the total amount raised.
